Pradeep Reddy Kamasani has joined EduRev as a strategic investor, to help EduRev obtain new customers across southern India. Pradeep feels the EduRev platform has huge potential in the south, as it more conducive to adoption of EdTech platforms. The company has previously focussed on north India from its base in Delhi NCR.
Pradeep is a part of Hyderabad Angels group, and has been involved in the technology industry for more than 2 decades. He ran a technology firm in the USA before moving base to Bangalore.
EduRev is an educational network that connects students and teachers with courses and learning material. More than 40,000 students have already joined the EduRev network platform containing over 100 courses and more than 70,000 documents, videos and tests. The firm also sells efficiency and management platforms to teachers and institutions to digitize their classrooms.
With the funds raised from this current round, EduRev will also be introducing a new model that will help colleges in admitting new students. The company was initially funded by Jaarvis Accelerator who assisted EduRev to find the product market fit.
